Christian Ashrams are unique retreats that take place all over the world. They are Christ-centered and non-denominational, giving individuals of all ages an opportunity to discover Christian answers for victorious daily living in the 21st century.
E. Stanley Jones is the founder of the International Christian Ashram Movement and in 1938, Time magazine called E. Stanley Jones, “the world’s greatest missionary.” His vision was to create an environment in which people could get away from their normal routine and seek the Lord. Christian Ashram means a “retreat away from work” centered on Jesus Christ.
